Rack-Card Kiosk

Are you ready for our first transformation of 2014??  That plain-jane rack-card kiosk in my dining room finally has a new look!

Technically I finished this project late last year but what difference does it really make? Am I right?? Last year a friend gave me this display kiosk that she’d picked up at a store closing sale. I had lots of great ideas about how to use it but none of them ever really seemed to win my heart.

It was always one of those, ‘Well, I could put pictures in it. . . or maybe I’ll save cards that we receive. . . or MAYBE invitations to events. I love invitations and they’re always so pretty!’ Round and round I would go, never really making up my mind.Boring rack-card displayOne day, as I walked in the door from work, I checked the mail saw this card we’d received from the water project and popped it in the kiosk. It was in that moment that I knew.

Display personal cardsThe next free evening we had I went to Lowe’s and scoured the spray paint aisle. My initial moment of inspiration said ‘go for the gold’ but standing there looking at gold I knew it was all wrong. I pulled and audible and went black. Man oh man, I’m sure glad I did!

A little paint goes a long wayUpdated rack-card displayDisplay Christmas cards and family photosSo needless to say, I’m kind of using it to display a conglomeration of our lives. . .pictures, invites, cards, etc. (you know, like every single idea I’d previously had) but somehow against that beautiful black back-drop it’s all more wonderful that I could have imagined.Rack-Card Display from thefrontpoarch.comWhat are you working on for 2014?
